When nothing is easy
There are times when nothing is easy. That's right for me. Although I am constantly posting on my blog, I run into difficulties here and there. The computer doesn't listen. Posts I've been working hard on suddenly disappear. When the fan gets louder on my computer, I have to put everything down and get up. Because it won't go any further.
I buy the best computer for my children, but it is difficult to change my computer even when it is time to change it. It is not easy to do everything as a woman, a mother, a housewife, and an artist. As a woman, there are many additional hurdles to overcome. However, this may be difficult to understand unless someone is in the same situation as me. It may sound like a child's grumbling if you tell someone else for nothing
So I do not talk about my situation well, but rather choose silence. I try to find the best I can do within the limited time and material. During this time, I was able to get closer to the hearts of others.
It must be frustrating and painful to be unable to accomplish what I want to accomplish because something is blocking it. There are times when I too get discouraged when I stand under these barriers and look straight at them. When that happens, I get comfort from seeing more hopeful examples from my neighbors on the internet.
An 11-year-old Filipino girl who won the track and field competition wearing so-called 'bandage Nike' is a hot topic. Despite the difficult economic situation, the girl's will to run and not give up on her dream of running continues to be praised and helping hands. According to local media GMA and other reports, a girl named Lea Balos, an elementary school student in Balasan, Philippines, won the gold medal in a local track and field event on the 9th with a bandage on her foot. He ran with a bandage on his feet instead of sneakers because he didn't have money.
When I hear the news of this girl, I feel ashamed of myself. I am amazed at the tenacity and enthusiasm of an 11-year-old little girl.
I always think like this when I'm working on something. If I could afford to buy paints, if I could afford to put my paintings in a frame, if I could afford to participate in more competitions, if I had time to draw more pictures... is well aware that But we will continue to find our way within limited time and resources.
